There are different ways to lower your cholesterol. You should always talk with your family doctor because he/she will know best which changes in your overall life might help the most.
The following life style changes often help regulate cholesterol:
* regular physical activity
* reduce over all stress
* get regular and enough sleep
* avoid transfats, instead use fats with polyunsaturated fatty acids (salmon and other fish) or monounsaturated fatty acids (olive oil as example)
* increase the amount of dietary fibre
I am a 60 year old female. Just found out my cholesterol number is 310. HDL=64 LDL-210 and TRIG=110. I have been active (a runner) most of my life with a normal weight (130 lbs. at 5 4 ) About 3 years ago I had major foot injury (posterior tibial tendon rupture) had surgery with a pretty long recovery time. I have gained 45 lbs. I have also had palpations my whole life, I m told not dangerous, but they do feel that way sometimes. My question is: can I safely lower my cholesterol, and risk of heart attack without medication? I am willing to do anything ie: diet and exercise etc. I have so much anxiety around this issue right now. Every day I think I m about to have a heart attack.
My endocrinologist says that my cholesterol level is good for a normal person, but the AMA recommends that a diabetic, which I am, in my range should go on a statin. I did look into the statins and there are quite a few side effects AND I don t believe the AMA is always right. My GP says that cholesterol levels are genetic and I won t be able to bring mine down any lower without taking the medicine. Thoughts on that?
Hello, I saw my doctor today and my cholesterol level was total 247, with triglycerides 63, HDL 111, and LDL of 123. I was just wondering is this very bad and does the high HDL help. There is high cholesterol in my family. I am a 49 yr old female and do not currently take medication to lower my cholesterol. Should I be taking one? Thank you, Angela Salamone
